Default Wiper issues

It seems at times when wipers are on delay, it takes a long time between delay wipes, even on fastest wipe time. Of course I need to clear windshield and then some times whatever speed it is on will seem to work properly. Do I need a new delay switch?

I have kind of the same issue but have noticed the delay interval is smaller the faster I drive. In town at 35mph to highway at 70mph. They're either speed sensative or I have a problem. Not sure.

Edit: I doubt they're speed sensitive.

I haven't really thought much about speed, but this is going at hwy speeds when I've really noticed. In town, I have to wipe more frequent anyway because of road spray. I try and stay back from cars on hwy or get in frt.

Use Rain-X. A fresh treatment will just about eliminate the need for wipers over about 45 mph.

I use rainx in my windshield washer. I think the last time I had my oil changed, they diluted mine and I forgot to tell them to skip it.

Sounds as if it's either the Wiper Switch, or the Wiper Motor.

You need to thoroughly clean the windshield, then do a Rain-X treatment. Using their washer fluid helps boost it but you shouldn't use it on an untreated windshield. It will get too streaky and gummy if you do.
